Monday, July 11, 2005 Article: N.Y.'s 'other expats' in search of a home

from The New York Times

In this city of dozens of convivial ethnic neighborhoods,
there are some people who do not have one.

New York can be a particularly lonely place for certain expatriates
like Australians, British, Japanese and Norwegians who are without
neighborhoods because, unlike true immigrants, so many are there
for a limited run, either working for a few years for a native company
or jump-starting a career in fashion, art or the news media.
Many have left large families behind and some vacillate painfully
between staying in New York permanently or returning.
